What I Could Have Said

Well it wasn’t a bad evening,
Even if I didn’t meet anyone I really wanted to see again.
The band was fun.

That last guy told me,
“You’re a good dancer. 
“I’ll bet you’re good in bed.”

I could have said, “I’m the best.”
What would he have said to that?
But he didn’t arouse even my curiosity.

I could have suggested a smoother pick-up line,
and see how he responded to a critique.

I could have said, “Sure, let’s fuck.  I’ve got nothing else on tonight.”
How would he have reacted to an unenthusiastic consent?

I could have told him,  “You’ll never know.”
But I don’t enjoy being hostile.

But all I said was,
“Thank you.  Good night.”
